Congregational singing is the practice of the Christian Church of antiquity. This tradition established itself in the Church of Constantinople during the fourth century, growing out of the practices of intoning psalms from the synagogue and the offering of simple responses in the Apostolic Church. Our parish has, for many years, labored to establish a congregational singing program as part of her Music Ministry. The goal of this ministry is to have the congregation become educated in Orthodox hymnography and able to sing/chant the Divine Liturgy as well as many of the other beautiful hymns of the Church. Congregational Singing and Byzantine Chant practices are held at the Parish.
